Damp, gloomy conditions greet us this morning as we head back to reality after the Thanksgiving holiday stretch. The good news is that despite pockets of drizzle and mist this morning…temperatures are above the freezing mark. Areas of black ice will be limited to a patch or two in far western MA, southwest NH.  In other words, this will NOT be a situation like yesterday morning. Do watch out for areas of reduced visibility in areas of fog.

The fog may lift slightly during the afternoon, but clouds will remain stubborn, especially at the coast…expect temperatures to rise into the low to mid 40s. Tonight, some fog and drizzle will develop once again, and there may be a few spotty slick spots early tomorrow north and west of Boston. Otherwise, our Tuesday will feature the chance of wet weather over the Cape and Islands courtesy of a storm passing to our southeast.

Admittedly, there is still some uncertainty as to how far northwest the precipitation shield will come…some guidance is suggesting a complete miss, so we’ll watch this closely. Nonetheless, any wet weather that develops over the southeast part of the state will be in the form of rain tomorrow. What you will notice tomorrow is the wind, which will occasionally gust over 20 mph, particularly on Cape Cod through the afternoon and evening from the north.

A weak ridge of high pressure builds in briefly on Wednesday providing us with brighter skies and highs in the middle 40s.  An approaching warm front will bring lots of clouds and the threat for some showers Wednesday night into early Thursday…a sign of milder air trying to push into the region. It won’t last long though; cooler air will gradually work into the area on Friday (along with showers) as a cold front pushes through. In its wake, high pressure builds in from the northwest, suppressing moisture to our south for the upcoming weekend.
